A Quote by Dennis Genpo Merzel on buddhism, god, nature, and taoism

{True zazen is surrendering every moment.} But surrendering to what? It really does not matter what we call it: God or the Tao or the Dharma or the Buddha or our true nature. . . . It is the act of letting go, of surrendering, that matters. The very act of letting go opens us up completely.

Dennis Genpo Merzel (1944 -)
